Hall, John

John Hall grew up on the north side of Cork city during the 1960s and 1970s. He bought his first camera in the 1980s and began a lifelong passion for photography. After 20 years of focusing on Irish landscapes and seascapes a trip to Innishannon Steam Rally prompted him to start taking the photographs that became this book. A trip to Puck Fair in Killorglin followed, and he was soon scouring the local press for notices of festivals, fetes and fairs to add to the portfolio he was building. He has exhibited his photographs at many local exhibitions and was featured in a major exhibition at Cork Airport in 2015.
